EPIC: This Diver Captures The Moment He Crashes Into A Shark Whale Underwater

Underwater, no one can hear you scream.

But they can sure as hell hear you roar in panic, expel all your air, and tumble head over heels when rammed in the head by a school bus-sized whale shark.

Such was the case when Chris Coates was filming his friend spearfishing in the Atlantic Ocean recently. Mr. Coates was focused on his friend pursuing a tuna when that friend suddenly pointed behind him. Coates turned just in time to see the largest fish in the world barreling down on him. As Coates was filming, the entire collision is caught on video.

Viewers see Coates impact with the shark’s jaws then tumble over the sharks back shrieking as he does so. Although the accident looks bad, Coates only sustained injuries from the impact to his lower torso and head. He returned to filming the next day.

Coates is a lot tougher than me.

You?
